on the economy, how does the consumer feel about the so-called recovery? we bring you new numbers on that at the top of this coming hour. and let's go to nicole. we have news on apple's mini ipad. what's the news and what's the stock doing? >> oh, the speculation is swirling. well, we'll see whether or not apple takes off the-- and goes under the the wraps here. october 23rd, the day we're looking for. this may be the day we learn a lot more about the ipad mini that we have been talking about here on "varney & company," right. stuart: when we learn a lot more, what will it be? the specs on the thing, how big, how small. >> i don't know. invitation only event. it was reported all things d on today. and we've talked about the fact that the ipad is 9.7 inches, the ipad mini based on some of the analysts who went over to asia and saw some of the displays being ordered were speculating it could be 7.8 inches, so 7.8 rather than 9.7. and so, it will be smaller and will be able to compete, obviously, more readily with the kindle fire and the other smaller types of tablets. stuart: i just
the latest look into the u.s. economy, and the latest fuel for the fight over economic policy in the presidential campaign. it was the kind of news that president obama hoped for, just over a month before the election and two days after a sub-par debate outing. >> more americans entered the work force, more people are getting jobs. >> brown: indeed, september's unemployment rate, calculated by a survey of households, fell to 7.8%. that's the lowest since the president took office. a second survey, of businesses, showed that employers added a net of 114,000 jobs, and job gains for july and august were revised upward by 86,000 the president touted the numbers in a campaign stop at george mason university in fairfax, virginia. >> now, every month reminds us that we've still got too many of our friends and neighbors who are looking for work. there are too many middle class families that are still struggling to pay the bills. they were struggling long before the crisis hit. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points.
economies because so many manufacturing and technology jobs are moving, whether it is a matter of costs for going where the trained work force is. we're fortunate to have to governors here to talk about how that change affects their jobs and what they're doing to jump- start their economies which compete with one another. this could be fun. let me start with our guest. governor hickenlooper. i knew that was going to happen. most of us here are pretty much aware of california's budget crisis. can you give us a quick briefing on where colorado is and what you are trying to do to turn things around? >> our budget is just as dressed as almost every state in the country. we have been working trying to control costs, get our pension funds in line, our state employees have not had a raise in four years. it has been difficult all the way around. the real challenge has been to try and turn public sentiment and get people to recognize it without a strong economy. it will not solve any of these problems. we have been relentless in what we did, the bottom up process and we asked them what they want
trying to push the leaders of developed economies down a prudent path. weighed some of the risks and say confidence pretty much everywhere is still pretty fragile. economists release global financial stability report, checkup of the financial system. >> the choice today is between making the necessary but tough policy and political decisions or delaying them once more in the false hope that time is on our side. it is not. >> the man there says it is time for governments off to act. he said the biggest risk is the euro zone. private sector money pulled out from peripheral economies in the region back into the core ones. that is pushing up borrowing costs for government, banks, countries, italy and spain. this he is says feeding a further downturn to. reap ver to reverse the situation is well timed fiscal consolidation and they need to do this reducing excessive debts. economists fame size steps need to be take in to boost foundations beneath banks they hope the european stability and bond buying program will help rebuild investor confidence. they suggest a unified system to supervise bank
that the economy is a top issue, you run into a risk of focusing on too many items as opposed to jobs and economic issues. host: there will also be a foreign policy debate coming up on october 22. is this a sort of preview of that debate? will this be a preview for the obama camp to see what they will be talking about, coming up? caller: it will be a chance for governor romney to do a preview, yes. the thing that i think occurred many times before, romney camp -- came out and named a lot of these things fairly forcefully. from what we saw yesterday, this will be an even stronger reputation of his view on those issues. getting out on the campaign trail at these paul ryan events, particularly when it comes to the issue of things like foreign aid and how this country deals with the resources when it comes to other places, we do not exactly see that relationship being reciprocal. it is something that has gotten a surprising amount of attention on the trail over the last few weeks. it could be an area where the mitt romney campaign is looking forward as they decided to hold this speech. host: one piece
's now the economy that has the e.u. facing one of its biggest crises yet. mounting debts, high unemployment, and austerity measures have triggered protests in some euro-zone nations. the economic woes have created deep rifts among countries using the joint currency, and raised questions about maintaining the euro and even their union. germany is the e.u.'s economic powerhouse. its chancellor, angela merkel, said the nobel peace prize shows the value of european unification. >> ( translated ): the euro is more than a currency because in the end it is foremost about the original idea, the idea of europe as a community of peace and values. >> suarez: but there were detractors, including those who said the e.u. hasn't dealt with an influx of immigrants. the director of amnesty international's branch that monitors the e.u. said he hopes the award would encourage the european union to be more open to refugees. >> suarez: the $1.2 million prize will be awarded in oslo on december 10. for a closer look at its successes and some of the ongoing challenges facing the e.u., i'm joined by a
the global economy is critical. europe is our largest export market, and it is in a slow decline that will go on for some time. china finds europe as their largest export market. we have an extraordinary relationship with china, with our exports. all of this is under challenge. the fundamental issue is to understand if we get rid of uncertainty, if we step up in a clear way and decide what we're going to do about our unemployment by using energy, by expanding tourism, by working hard to change our regulatory system, and if we face the fundamental realities, we can fix this. we only need one thing. we need leadership in the white house and congress. we need leadership in the business community. >> can this come significantly down? >> you asked if this is the new normal. >> that is the choice americans are going to make on election day. i think most americans would say no. the american spirit is alive and well. that will help us grow the economy. but you have to look at some fundamentals. for manufacturers it is more expensive than any other country in the world. that is after you take out the
to "washington journal." as campaign 2012 hits its final month, the presidential candidates are using the economy to frame their vision for the future and what they would do for the american dream. we saw a jobs numbers that showed an unproven unemployment rate. we would like to hear your opinions. has the american dream been downsized? you can also share your opinion on social media. send us a tweet by writing @cspanwj. you can also join the conversation on facebook. or you can e-mail us. the front page of "the washington post"looks out with the call life of a salesman. he always finds to -- he always seems to find optimism in the worst of circumstances. here is another chance. the story profiles this man building and installing pools. how he had to downsize his business, cut employees, and work even harder to find jobs. let's take a look at the content. it says -- what do you think? has the picture of the american dream changed? national journal took a look it how americans are perceiving the economic situation right now, not just on a national level but on the personal lives, too. in a heartla
on here. >> let's look at a new mitt romney ad that is new on the jobs and economy. >> look at the evidence of the last four years. we have 23 million people out of work or who have stopped look for work. they are suffering. the president would prefer to raise taxes. the problem with raising taxes, it slows down the rate of growth. i'm not going to raise the taxes on anyone because when the economy is going slow, we are in recession, you shouldn't raise taxes on anyone. my idea is to bring down tacks to get more people working. my priority is putting people back to work in america. >> kim, is that an improvement over the other romney adds we've seen earlier? >> you beach cha. this is how it ties in taxes and jobs and the economy. that was the message that resonated when he was up there on stage with the president and the more he can spread it around the country, the better he does. >> that seems to me to be the winning strategy. particularly if you can put more explanations around the specific policies this will increase jobs. when we come back, the presidential race is tigh
's market headlines a grim imf forecast for the global economy sent stocks sliding down 110 points. nasdaq was the day's biggest loser posting its largest loss since june 25th. earnings season starts off on a good foot. alcoa beat estimates on top and bottom line. shares are getting a nice pop after-hours. >>> government is filing a civil suit against wells fargo. they are accused of reckless behavior issuing federally backed loans. shares of wells fargo fell nearly 2%. >>> all right, our top story today, german chancellor angela merkel arrived in greece today and was met with massive protests. some greeks even dressed as nazis to mock the german leader that is so nice. what a great welcome. why are the greeks protesting one of the few people who might actually be able to help them escape a economic meltdown? joining me for more on this story, university of chicago proper professor charles lipscomb and former director of the congressional budget office, douglas holtz-eakin. thanks to you both for joining us. doug, what do you think of those pictures? >> i think this is a reminder that gree
the city's approach to developing economies? >> in the chair of the land use committee this year, and i was vice chair last year with our former chair from the bayview hunters point area. i guess i approach land use and economic development from a different perspective. i'm not against development, but i want it to be equitable so we look at the lowest income populations or even middle income populations so that residents have a strong say as development moves forward, whether it is the park ridge said development in the southern, western part of the city or even treasure island with there's many low-income families that currently live there. but it is a strong voice for the residents that currently are there. we also want to see new people moving into the city, and hopefully, we focus also on families and housing that provides better homes and home opportunities for families, but i always say that i support equitable development. i also do feel that big business and downtown interests usually dominate the discussion on development. i want to see a balance of those forces, but also with
profit corporations are not putting back into our or economy. the largest beneficiary would be california. we want to see what the cutting edge is. most of a still look for california. -- loomost of us still look to california. what governor brown said about the traditional politics is all about taking the thing in making it fresh. to a certain extent, i tried to be a writer in college. i failed miserably. a professor said everything has been set but not everything has been said superbly. even if it had, everything must be said freshly again and again. you have to see a fresh lead to a certain extent. the real issue with -- in terms of asking the president, what are the things that matter most, a bass part of those profits would be invested in california. colorado would have a significant -- pretty much every state in the country would benefit. you look at the companies based in silicon valley. they have offices, you want to expand your business, think about those young people in colorado. everything -- stated say the same thing. that money would get spent over the country v
issue that is really in people's minds is the state of the economy. how is it that we are going to be able to bring down the unemployment rate in san francisco? how is it that we can have sustainable job growth in different sectors in san francisco? how is it that our future generations -- our kids and use -- are trained so they are able to take advantage of what is emerging -- our kids and youth. weather is the health care industry and other things that might be looking rosier -- whether it is the health care industry and other things that might be looking rosier in terms of job activity. >> how will you balance the needs of your district against the needs of the city as a whole? >> -- supervisor chu: a lot of people ask that question. they ask how you can be an effective supervisor and have the city's overall interests in mind, but the thing people often lose is the fact that what is good for the city often times is good for our residents as well. if we are seeing huge economic uncertainty or recessions that are impacting, let's say, the downtown core where many of our busines
start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is to come and put the money in the communities. i went down there today and he did not say, thank you for coming. please take this money and bring it back to washington. he said, go back to washington and tell them they need a reality check. we are tired of the overspending and the taxing and taking more money out of the economy. there are real challenges here. i used to live here. i worked and i lived over there. i understand. many businesses are hurting right now. regulatory tax uncertainty is
campaign and white house were aware that they had a very ugly economy and the comments really do not get reelected under these types of economies. they have always come across as hungrier and more aggressive than the romney campaign. in almost every respect. they were ready for a fight from the get go. >> this is what makes the debate so puzzling. the campaign has been hungry. look at the advertising they have been running. really smart advertising. >> who is running the obama campaign? david axelrod? obama? who is running the romney campaign? is the family intervening? >> from the white house, david pluft was the campaign manager in 2008 when they were underdogs. now the senior adviser in the white house. he has the last word on most things in the campaign and in the white house. ji messina, the cam -- the campaign manager in chicago runs an organization carried on the run inside, romney, ceo. when people look back at that campaign, a big factor people will look at is how a this as a person could have created a campaign that has such fuzzy lines of accountability, a campaign management
to the path, because it's the mechanism that'll make all the difference. >> the economy plays a significant role in recruitment and retention. will the economy coupled with talks to change military retirement pay and health care have a negative impact on retaining a professional all-volunteer force? >> i don't know. but, you know, as i travel around and visit with young soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, and i also visit the coast guard from time to time, and i ask them why'd you come in, the answers are really varied. some of them come in because they want to defend their nation, and they know the nation's at war, and then some come in, as you noted, for economic reasons. what i will tell you is it doesn't matter why they come in, but because once you get 'em and you build into them this sense of purpose and sense of belonging, another attribute, by the way, that tends to be missing in american youth as they try to figure out who and what they are. by the way, i'm not trying to recruit you, but i will tell you that i'm happy to have your kids -- [laughter] but i will tell you that one
that's the worst thing you can do for the poor is to have no economic growth and a terrible economy. the way you get the poor off the rolls is to get them a job. this president has done a terrible job in that regard. host: next phone call john republican. caller: he says, there's no reason to build roads in the suburbs when they put it in the cities. guest: sir, i'm not aware of that. you maybe referring to oneqrnsñf the transportation bills that passed. you confess that the funding mechanisms for those projects are very complicated. i'm not sure that i can be much help in your question. host: cleveland, ohio, democratic caller. caller: all you republicans keep saying the obama economic program didn't work. what happened, kennedy died, there was no control of the senate, you republicans filibusterrered 275 bills in 2010. they effectively killed the total obama economic agenda. we've had over the last four years the republican austerity. the vets jobs bill was filibusterrered. four republicans crafted the bill and when the bill came to the floor, 58 members on the floor, 42 rep
talking about today? are they still talk about differences on job, on economy, on health care? uh-huh. no. no. no. the number one issue that has taken hold more written about, more spoken about more than any other issue is big bird. yes, indeed. we remember mitt romney pressed to say, okay now look you say you are going to cut all of these programs. let's get real. give us one example of programs you are going to cut. >> romney: i'm sorry, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i like big bird, i actually like you too. >> bill: oh boy. it's so stupid just so stupid to lay that out there. this has been a classic republican attack line going way back. i remember when newt gingrich was speaker his number one issue, number one issue as speaker of the house of representatives was to cut all funding for pbs and big bird and all of the rest on sesame street. it never went anywhere. and you know why it's not going to go anywhere? because big bird is too popular and doesn't cost much money. if you are alive, right? you know pbs and enjoy pbs, if you have ever had kids o
career to another. mid career as a result of the changing economy so that they can get new skills that they will need and for younger people who want to get into the job market to help them to be able to get on a path that will get them that bachelor's degree. >> i agree with the senator that the retraining is a important aspect of the educational system here. i think city college here in san francisco falls into entirely different category or problems that don't afflict some of the other community colleges around the state. beyond that, however, we have to recognize that college in and off itself is not necessarily suitable for all students and we have to recognize that at an earlier age, we should have more vocational type of training tracks in our high school education as well. people want to go straight from high school into auto mechanic or green jobs such as installing solar technology, things like that. that should be an option, as well. i think that it is a fallacy that every citizen or every resident of california needs to have a college education. >> so i have a question
going on in gasoline markets is the fact that the largest export in the american economy today is refined petroleum products. america is exporting three million barrels of refined product like gasoline, diesel and jet fuel out of the gulf coast but what that is doing is keep, refining margins nice and profitable but it is also elevating gas prices artificially higher than they otherwise would be. >>eric: could you suggest the refiners not sell to the best beller? >>guest: not if it is negatively impacting american drivers and the american economy. >>eric: so you want trade restrictions or protectionist? if you refine it here you keep it here and we make it more expensive for are to do business here but don't sell it anywhere elsewhere the standards are easier to deal with? >>guest: we already have those regulations over crude oil that is produced here in the united states. if you want to export american-produced crude oil you have on get a license to do so from the department of commerce. we ought to at least investigate whether the record level of gasoline exports from america
more organized. but it is an uphill climb because the economy is so tough. it's an uphill climb especially after the debate there was extra local attention on that debate. there was so much residual coverage of that in the local media here that president obama's performance and mitt romney's performance played an especially huge role. >> jennifer: you think because of the local coverage coupled with the national coverage you got really saturated? >> that's absolutely right. it wasn't just the national story, it was local radio and television, and there was a before and after on all of this. >> jennifer: there still is. we're still talking about it too. so tell us about the mood of the conservative -- i know you have a radio show where you have a lot of conservative listeners so i assume they are feeling their oats for mitt romney? feeling really good? >> here is what is worrisome, i sense that the enthusiasm is on romney's side. the organization is on the democratic side, but there is a lot of enthusiasm, not necessarily for mitt romney but for the idea
months ago. the economy is under pressure. we have made clear as the number ellen did council has made clear that -- north atlantic council has made clear that the assault on turkey's sovereignty is unacceptable. we stand by our turkey's allies. >> the iraq commissioner said he is stepping down november 9. was that -- will the present bill that position quickly? >> i have no personnel announcements to make today. none today. >> tim from bloomberg news. at the hearing today about been , the request from libya for more security was rejected by the state department. was the white house involved with the discussions or the determinations? >> i am not going to get into specifics under review by the accountability review board. i would point you to testimony being delivered by officials close to the facts about our diplomatic security posture as we speak on capitol hill in the very hearings that you referenced. the present's position has been that we need to ensure the safety and security of our diplomatic facilities and our diplomatic personnel. it is unquestionable that our civilian person
's the american people with one message, that he can take us to a better place, he can deliver us from the economy we all inherited from george w. bush to something better. romney came out best in the first debate because he denied the path he has chosen, denied the big tax cut from 35% down to 28% for people at the top bracket. the all-out elimination of the estate tax, the big-time cut in the corporate rate. he do denied his plan to limit nate medicare, denied he would kill coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. he got away without bolterring to deny his plan to let the automobile industry to go bankrupt and to dump 40 million people to wait in the energy ro emergency room. let's look at the some of the latest polling in the wake of wednesday's debate. this afternoon pew released a poll that showed a dramatic shift toward romney. this poll covers the four days sibts the debate and it has romney pulling even with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in t

. of the innovation economy. in the case of google, specialized search looked like such an innovation. product improvement that differentiate google's offering allows it to monetize its investment. we should be cautious about condemning such conduct for fear of discouraging precisely such innovation. the second sense i in secondt is -- in which is is relevant is in the more colloquial term. the colloquial sense of things changing quickly. when most people think about dynamism, most are thinking about things change fast. that issue. but the first census also extremely -- sense is also extremely important. the risk here lies the decree 88 effect of property in the status quo. every effort manufacturers -- for manufacturers to prevent car makers to move on to cassette because they have advanced after all. or buggy many factors to discourage carriage makers to moving on to cars. because there goes my market and i invested in good faith on the notion that carriages will continue to be made. or for travel websites, to have a defective right in a particular piece of real estate. i think the paper as
in the news business very often underestimate the impact of the economy on women as a voting group. >> yeah. always talking about abortion and a lot of other social issues. because, you know what? it's the same thing too with a lot of gay voters that will come up to me and go, listen, i care about gay marriage. you know what i care about more? getting a job. >> bingo. >> my partner getting a job. we can't forget that in this sort of hot house where we talk about all of these social issues that the media love talking about. >> you're making an argument right now that women will get -- more women will get jobs under mitt romney. >> no, no, no -- >> that's not the case. >> no, health care, rising cost of health care, rising cost of groceries, the rising cost of just living. women go to work and put gas in their cars in the morning. >> right. >> it's ridiculous. >> i really would like to finish my point because it's important that nobody misunderstands me. my point was, mika, that women care about jobs first for the most part, most women do, most women care more about putting food on their kids
of this campaign which is the economy. >> john, i want to ask you about mitt romney and his foreign policy advisers and how he would differ from president obama. there's an interesting piece "new york times" in the today by david sanger, what he says of mr. romney. beyond his critique of mr. obama as failing to project american strength abroad, mr. romney has yet to fill in many of the details of how he would conduct foreign policy toward the rest of the world. and he also points out that romney has a disparate and politically fractured team of advisers that include warring tribes of neoconservatives and others. is there a coherent strategy that's coming from mitt romney on foreign policy, or is it a work in progress? >> it's absolutely a work in progress. and in part that's because you don't really know what a president's going to do until they're faced with these decisions. as david sanger wrote in his book about what president obama learned in the early parts of this presidency here, there was a covert operation going on with iran he had known nothing about when he was a candidate, that immediat

. connell: we showed this number that we need 200,000 jobs a month, you know, in order to get the economy at least get it up and going to some extent again. even that there's some debate on the amount of jobs we actually need per month. you know, we have two different surveys. the 873 is from the separate household number, but two thirds of those were part time jobs. if it comes up in the next debate and romney tries to bring up these issues that i raised with you, how should obama handle it? should he say hey we're on the right track things are getting better or say we have a lot more work to do? >> if i were him, i would say both of those things. he can claim that things have gotten better. that he inherited a bad situation and it is now improving, and the last report was pretty good even on the payroll side because they revised up the two previous months. but on the other hand, we certainly haven't had the kind of plus 200,000 job numbers that you mentioned, that we would really like to see, maybe even more than that to get the unemployment down to a reasonable level. connell: are we o
the economy is the biggest ticket item. reporting in washington jacqueline fell ktvu channel 2 news. >>> it's been called the worst wild fire season on record and the forest service ran out of money to fight the flames. at the end of august funding ran out to pay for the firefighters, fire trucks, and aircraft that fight the flames so the department of agricultural which runs the forest service borrowed from other forest management programs the ones that aim to prevent the big fires to begin with. congress only provided half the $1 billion it costs to fight the fires this year. >>> new report is calling u.s. navies explanation for radiation contamination on treasure island inadequate. california health regulators says the report does not exemployer the possibility that the base may have been dusted with radio active ash or soaked with aid owe active sewage. . the navy acknowledges the history was more wide spread than they thought. >>> british researcher john gerdon were awarded the prize for discovering that certain cells of the body can be reprogrammed into stem cells. it's a discovery th
